Interesting when I tried sending the post instead of "pulls" I used the word "s*cks" and the post was rejected !
Its the anti-porn word checker - there are quite a few words which it picks up on which are perfectly innocent in many contexts! They have to be changed manually by the site owner (SatNavSaysStraightOn) in order not to get censored.

The list was over 700 words long which I have been through manually and edited for a cooking environment. I had thought I had found most of them. It seems not though if the word had been used in a singular context (suck) you'd have been fine! I believe it was probably sucks and sucker that it was aiming at removing. Ha well. Now sorted. Thank you for bringing it to our attention and your understanding.

morning glory, can we remove the relevant parts to the support forum please?

Not that I'm asking for a change, but the one that makes me laugh is when I type the word p i ss and it automatically subs in "mickey." That's my favorite! :)

That's a different system kicking in (the one above is for new members having their first x many posts checked to exclude people trying advertising driving licences, gambling, casinos, porn etc). The one you're seeing is the swear word filter (we're a site that is aimed at everyone, children included) that changes certain words for absolutely everyone (myself included). There's a much more interesting one that changes something to "self-gratification artist".
